There are currently three MP&T questions regarding dyslexia. With the understanding that this is a small number, and I don't immediately find other questions regarding non-physical types of limitation (leaving aside ), I suggest it's worthwhile to either rename the tag or add a new tag to encompass learning disabilities and other psychological/neuropsychological conditions or limitations.

As a discussion starting point, perhaps .

Related question: Should there be a new tag for personal physical limitations?


Update #1 (14 Jan 2021): I've come across a couple of other posts related to students who for various cognitive reasons either cannot read music or have great difficulty. In light of @YourUncleBob's comments, I'm leaning toward two tags: [physical-limitations], which exists already, and [learning-disabilities], which would be new.

Would like more feedback on the subject before considering further action.


Update #2 (26 Feb 2022): Revisiting this question in light of Dyslexia or Dyscalculia in Reading Music. A would fit the question, but I'm hoping for more feedback before creating a new tag and then adding it to relevant questions.

    Dyslexia is a neurological condition, not a psychological problem like stage fright, therefor the physical-limitations tag is not inappropriate. Oct 15, 2020 at 0:30
  • @YourUncleBob Appreciate the comment. Do you think a new limitation-or-disability tag would be suitable to encompass both physical limitations and neurological ones like dyslexia?

    Yes, but the current "physical-limitations" tag does that too. The real question is whether we should lump physical and psychological hurdles together in a broad "limitation-or-disability" tag. They require very different expertise. I can see value in keeping the "physical-limitations" tag and maybe creating a separate one like "psychological-hurdles" or "performance-psychology" or simply "psychology". Oct 15, 2020 at 4:59
  • @YourUncleBob FYI: I've updated the post and would appreciate your thoughts and feedback.

I think would be a worthwhile tag based on current questions asked as we've had a decent amount of question in this vein. I do think it should always be paired with a subtopic like , , as a question with that tag alone may not make sense for a site.
